Construction 2000 is almost ten meters high (9690 mm). The pyramid structure consists of 588 rods and 140 balls in joints. The supporting pole is made of three thinner poles which are connected together. It seems as though the pyramid should fall down due to lack of wires above it. The locations and the angles of the wires used are critical for making the 600 kg pyramid to stay elevated.
